Xtreme Gamut (Xg) should have awesome gamut, if it's 
anything at all like the other Ilford/Archiva derivatives 
I've worked with.  And on the 3000, it should run without 
problems.  However, its main selling point -- its archival 
properties -- are not proven or guaranteed for arbitrary 
paper types.

I find it interesting that Xg paper uses a gelatin surface.
I wonder if the paper surface, as much as the ink, is 
responsible for Xg's presumed "archivalness?"
